I didn’t make last week’s journal in Sue’s journal making course because it was a wire bound one and I have a Bind it All machine which I thought would do the job adequately. But I did make this accordian fold one the week before, with envelopes as signatures. I decided to make it from the remaining house fabric.
I had previous gocco printed some brown envelopes which I bought in Machynllech on holiday. Some of them I got upside down but because they were put in vertically in this journal it didn’t matter!
The gocco prints are of buildings too, so they fitted in nicely with the theme. I didn’t have quite enough so I also put this white envelope with a lovely bee stamp which someone sent me a while ago. I kept it because it looked so nice and I’m glad I did because I’ve finally found a use for it.
We made little journals to go inside the envelopes and, being short of time, I decided to use some of the scraps from the previous house journal to make triangular ones, instead of the larger rectangular ones in Sue’s instructions.
Here they are sitting in their little pockets:
I even got an ATC sized piece out of the scraps and I think it looks great with this altered leaf on top of it!
